The following applications are accompanied by complete instructions for customization of the activity without the need for using the Flash authoring system. All customization is done by making appropriate changes to an external data (xml) file. When the xml file is complicated, we provide a GUI "authoring tool" that compiles the data for you. In every case, detailed instructions are provided. Click here to download the pdf guide that we used for our presentation at ICTCM 2008.
